Hi Sudheer,

Here is an example of the config changes to be done on CME (Communications Manager Express)

Basic Call Forwarding: Example

The following example sets up forwarding for extension 2777 to extension 2513 on all calls, busy, and no answer. During night service hours, calls are forwarded to a different number, extension 2879.

For Phone A

ephone-dn 20

number 2777

call-forward all 2513

call-forward busy 2513

call-forward noan 2513 timeout 45

call-forward night-service 2879

Then for Phone B

ephone-dn 21

number 2513

call-forward all

call-forward busy XXXX (where XXXX is the Cue Pilot #)

call-forward noan XXXX timeout 45 (where XXXX is the Cue Pilot #)

You can check this for CUE;

**Mailbox selection (OCN or LRD) in your case use OCN

This configurable option specifies the mailbox to be used in case of call forward.

Mailbox selection: Mailbox in which an incoming voice message is stored. The options are original called number (OCN) or the last redirected number (LRD). LRD is the default option:)

Hope this helps!
